Talent level at Post Logic rises


Two post industry talents, colorist Bryan McMahan and Denis LaConte, have joined Post Logic Studios.

LaConte was one of the members of the team that this year earned Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Sci Tech Awards for the development of the Rosetta process for creating digital YCM archival masters for digital film restoration. He starts at Post Logic midmonth as vp software engineering, arriving from Pacific Title and Art Studio, where he was vp and head of software development.

McMahan has returned to Post Logic after some 18 months at Technicolor. He brings more than two decades of experience in film mastering and telecine-based color correction and has done extensive work on digital intermediate projects.

McMahan's credits include DI color timing for "A Plumm Summer" and "Walking Tall"; feature mastering for "The Prestige," "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Bug"; and remastering of Paramount library titles including "Island in the Sky," "The High and the Mighty" and "Sunset Blvd."

"This represents how important the talent in the room and the talent behind the curtain are," Post Logic CEO Larry Birstock said. "Both play an equally important role in satisfying clients."

Post Logic Studios is an independently run postproduction facility that maintains a second base in New York.
